Accidental midwife...

I DELIVERED A BABY!!!!!!!

As most of you know already my sister-in-law Kirsty was pregnant & 3 days past her due date...well, I got a call at 06:57 this morning from my brother Jobie to say that Kirsty had started to feel a few pains in the early hours of the morning, we'd already pre-arranged that I'd do the hospital run so I casually got up & dressed thinking i'd be spending the day at the hospital. At 07:16 my brother called me back to say that things had sped up a LOT & that I needed to rush, so I jumped in the car & head over to their house, en-route I received another call from him, he was panicking this time. it was now just 7:32. I arrived at his house just moments later to find Kirsty in full labour & starting to push!! Jobie was on the phone to 999 who were calmly talking him through what to do - I washed my hands, grabbed a few towels & got down the business end just in time to see the head start to emerge!!...3 pushes later the baby was out!!!! I held the baby up,cleaned it's face & rubbed it's back to get it to start breathing while Jobie untangled the umbilical cord from around it's neck (scary!!)..a couple of minutes later at 7:42 the paramedics arrived by this time it was all over & we had a perfectly healthy baby BOY!!

Bringing a beautiful new life into this world was a truly amazing experience & certainly something I will never forget  :) 

Here's a quick pic I took on my phone of the proud Daddy Jobie, big sister Rosa & the tiny baby boy who is yet to be named...


WELCOME LITTLE ONE
